over the weekend we headed to one of our very favorite nearby hikes – Todd Lake. I always describe this hike as magical because it’s just that. exciting for all ages, especially kiddos.
this time of year the wildflowers are in full bloom, which Wolf adores. and what’s even more exciting is that there are thousands of tadpoles in the lake. they’re illegal to take home, but plenty of fun to gently poke at and scoop into little hands to be put back into the water safely. we all wore our Tevas and waded around in the water which was a blast. next time I think we’ll take out bathing suits, at least one for Wolf since he was soaking wet by the end of the hike.
I definitely recommend Todd Lake to any newcomers or visitors to Bend. the views are outstanding and the hike is one of the best around.
